Joyful noise : poems for two voices by Paul Fleischman( Book )
32 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 5,094 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Written to be read aloud by two voices-sometimes alternating, sometimes simultaneous-here is a collection of irresistible poems that celebrate the insect world, from the short life of the mayfly to the love song of the book louse. Funny, sad, loud, and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise. In this remarkable volume of poetry for two voices, Paul Fleischman verbally re-creates the "Booming/boisterious/joyful noise" of insects. The poems resound with the pulse of the cicada and the drone of the honeybee. Eric Beddows's vibrant drawings send each insect soaring, spinning, or creeping off the page in its own unique way. A clear and fascinating guide to the insect world-from chrysalis butterflies to whirligig beetles-and an exultant celebration of life

A vacant lot, rat-infested and filled with garbage, looked like no place for a garden, especially to a neighborhood of strangers where no one seems to care. Until one day, a young girl clears a small space and digs into the hard-packed soil to plant her precious bean seeds. Suddenly, the soil holds promise: To Curtis, who believes he can win back Lateesha's heart with a harvest of tomatoes; to Virgil's dad, who sees a fortune to be made from growing lettuce; and even to Maricela, sixteen and pregnant, wishing she were dead. Thirteen very different voices and perspectives—old, young, Haitian, Hispanic, tough, haunted, and hopeful—tell one amazing story about a garden that transforms a neighborhood. -- Provided by publisher

The borning room by Paul Fleischman( Book )
14 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 1,771 libraries worldwide
Lying at the end of her life in the room where she was born in 1851, Georgina remembers what it was like to grow up on the Ohio frontier. In Georgina's family house in Ohio, there is a room for birthing and a room for dying as the images of life unfold. Georgina remembers her life's "turnings," most of which occurred in the room set aside for giving birth & dying in her grandfather's house in 19th-century rural Ohio. It's a place where life and love begin, and loss is borne. Mothers give birth in the borning room. The dying take their departure there. Ouside the Lott family's Ohio farmhouse, the Civil War rages, slavery falls, and the world marvels at the wonder of electricity. Inside, within the walls of the borning room, Georgina Lott will experience her life's greatest turnings. Across the years, she discovers womanhood and first love, experiences the mourning that comes with loss, and, as did her mother and grandmother, at last takes her place in the room as another precious life is about to begin. The borning room is a room that figures large in the life of an Ohio farm girl born in 1851. Through its doorway pass the members of a free thinking family, bearing news of the world beyond the window: talk of runaway slaves, the siege of Vicksburg, seances, chloroform, electricity. In this heartfelt and haunting work, an account of one life, one family, and one room widens into a panoramic view of the human seasons and the procession of generations. "From an innovative, highly talented novelist and poet-memorable characters and valuable glimpses of social history in a beautifully crafted novel. Deeply rewarding
